I think she is getting bigger, but it could be that her legs are out, and last week they were not.
Playing "Peek-a-boo" -- Probably just trying to get away from the light or telling us to leave her alone.
It's hard to believe, but yet it isn't.... When I look forward, I wonder how much longer? When I look back, I wonder how things go by so fast? (Every now and then they switch.).... Abby pulled her ventilator tube out again on Saturday night/Sunday morning. They put it back in, but think they will leave it out if she does it again. We told her not to do it when we left Saturday night, but somehow she got a hold of that tube -- tried to leave her bundled so she couldn't. (That's two times now.) They had said they would probably leave it out this time, but I am guessing they felt she wasn't ready. The blood transfusion and infection seemed to have wore her out, and I think they are just trying to build her strength back up and let her grow a little bit more.
Her infection seems to be going away, and she continues to usually be her active self. She is still gaining weight -- pushing 2 1/2 pounds. John and I think she is getting bigger, but we have not asked if her measurements show her getting longer.
